CFP for the 51st Annual NEMLA Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, March 5 - 8, 2019
Tracy K. Smith, with four books of poetry, a volume of memoirs, a Pulitzer Prize and two stints as America's poet laureate, has every claim to be a major American poet at the pinnacle of success. It is easy to dwell on the mainstream acceptance that this success has earned. Her work is often described in highly aesthetic language, with an emphasis on its beauty and craft, and she sits neatly in the American poetic tradition. Among those poets she considers “most necessary” she invokes Seamus Heaney, Elizabeth Bishop, and Philip Larkin (Ordinary Light 336).
Over a period of about four centuries, many millions of Africans were shipped to the Americas and forced into slavery. Slavery developed in the colonial period, emerged in the age of the American Revolution, and expanded widely in the antebellum South, reaching its heyday between 1830 and 1860.
